A highlight of each Urbana convention is the call to commitment, and this year was no exception: 152 attendees acknowledged that they made a first-time decision to follow Jesus Christ at Urbana 06 and 9,000 people committed to use their vocation to serve God's Kingdom purposes globally and/or cross-culturally.
InterVarsity's Urbana 06 Student Missions Convention, December 27-31, 2006, in St. Louis, was a large, multi-faceted, event that transcends simple description. With this article we offer you a variety of perspectives.
At least 20,000 Urbana 06 attendees have sat in on plenary sessions this week, and were fed spiritually through song and praise and dance — all for the cause of Christ. Most will leave Monday with the desire to carry the flame from St. Louis and keep it burning back home. (An article from Urbana Today)
